WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

FYI – CREDO released the statement below in support of the Medicare For All Act of 2017:

This is exactly the type of bold solution we need to fix our broken health care system,” CREDO Political Director Murshed Zaheed said. “Access to health care should be a basic right guaranteed to all Americans, not a luxury for those who can afford it,” Zaheed said.

The fact that 16 Senate Democrats are now on the record in support of Medicare for all is clear evidence that the progressive wing of the Democratic Party has momentum,” Zaheed continued, adding, “Now it is time for the rest of the Senate Democratic caucus to catch up with progressive grassroots activists and throw their support behind this important bill.

CREDO’s recent petition urging all Democrats to support Medicare for all has been signed by more than 266,000 people. The petition, which can be found here, reads:

“It is time for Democrats to go on the offensive and take bold, decisive steps towards a health care system that puts people over profits. The majority of the country supports single-payer health care. Join Sens. Sanders, Merkley and Warren and Rep. Conyers to support legislation that would extend Medicare to all Americans.”

Please let me know if you have any questions.

CREDO Action, part of CREDO Mobile, is a social change network of over five million activists, sending millions of petition signatures and hundreds of thousands of phone calls to decision-makers each year.
